Community Engagement Grants Program

Our Community Engagement Grants Program (CEG Program) is an open competitive grant program that provides funding to not-for-profit organisations. The CEG Program helps deliver services that are separate and in addition to the FWO’s statutory functions. The CEG Program started on 1 January 2017. This is the second round of grants under the CEG Program.
